It's me again, sorry for being a newbie and keep on asking, i cant find a thread that answers my question.
I am on a thight budget and was thingking of starting a 10 gal planted tank. But first i want to budget how much i am gonna spend on fertelizer.
I was thinkging on buying one of those Seachem Flourish, but i wonder will it full fill both Micro and Macro nutrient requirement of plants? or maybe there is some other alternatives to getting cheap fertelizer or any other brand besides Flourish.

And if i do use only seachem flourish is that okay..and how often should i fertelize it...

Thanks in advance :P

I rarely fertilize. ONce every two weeks or so but I use flourite substrate, and inject co2. However, I like to add trace elements but I also don't like keeping very demanding plants when on a tight budget.
Kent's Plant and Proplant works as well as flourish and flourish trace.

Bunches of tanks.
Reef, Planted, vivarium, terriarium, salt.

I worked my self up from nothing to a state of extreme poverity

Will i need a bio ball for the filter unit? or will the bacteria colonize around the flourite substrate i use?
